BDE CAB file deployment

Hi,

I was reading through the text file (bdeinst..txt or something) that is
installed with Delphi 4. Installing the thing is very clear to me. what I
need to know is if using the BDE CAB file means that I have to use a
pathname for the database location. I don't see any place for creating an
alias, so that's what I am assuming. Can anyone tell me if I am correct?

Kind Regards,
